There is the graceful body motion of the telemark skier that is contrasted by the dynamic alpine skier or the fluid surfing snowboarder riding the waves of snow drifts. When all comes together to convey the sport known an snow riding in the camera it makes me want to dance. Snow rider photography is not easy. You stand in one spot in the cold, twist and shoot sometimes on the side of a cliff or above it. Stand for long periods make your muscles cold so when you start to ski it can be like skiing your first run of the day. You try to loosen up except you are riding in extreme dangerous exposed terrain that can work against you. Not an easy thing to do! After I put the camera back into the pack I too started to dance my way down the mountain!
